Level and Volume Measurement
Dust Penetrating, Multiple Point Three Dimensional
The acoustics-based technology used by the 3DLevelScanner sends pulses in a 70° beam angle, taking multiple measurements from the material surface. This dust-penetrating, non-contact device continuously maps the surface of the material to account for changes in level, overall volume and surface topography. The 3DLevelManager software reports the lowest point detected, the highest point detected and the average level based upon a weighted average of all of the measurements detected in the bin. The data is used to provide the user detailed information about the level of material in the bin and calculate an estimation of the volume of material in the bin. Based upon the 70° beam angle, a single 3DLevelScanner will provide the most accurate data in a bin up to 45 feet in diameter.
To get the same level of accuracy for larger diameter bins, multiple 3DLevelScanners mounted in strategic locations throughout the bin may be used. BinMaster determines
the optimum number of scanners and their ideal mounting locations by entering the specific information regarding the application into an advanced software program.
Often two 3DLevelScanners – one mounted closer to the perimeter and one closer to center, but away from the fill stream – will provide the desired level of accuracy. However, very large bins, such as 132’ or 145’ diameter, may require additional scanners to meet user objectives. However, a single scanner can be used in a very large bin if the ultimate goal for the system is not precise volume accuracy, but rather continuous, reliable level indication.
Measuring multiple points in a bin provides a great deal more data about the bin material and also allows for the software to calculate the volume of material in the bin with
greater accuracy than any single-point measurement device. To get the best performance, it is important that the application information for the vessel and the material being measured is accurate and complete. The number and location of 3DLevelScanners installed in the bin also plays a critical role. accurate data in a bin up to 45’ in diameter.
